Hey, I just wanted to say a quick to the recent Chinwag arrivals!

Chinwag's reason for existing is to provide communication tools for people, which is something I've always been interested in. I kind of target users, but welcome anyone from anywhere.

There's a basic guide to using Chinwag Social here:

If you have any questions or concerns hit me up!

As for me, I'm running this because communication technology interests me and I've been chatting to people around the world using 1s and 0s since about 1989.

I'm a professional . I've been working in the field for nearly 25 years and I've been reasonably competent at it for about 10.

I'm a big fan of the old SAGE code of and operate by it all the time when working, including my hobby projects like this one:

I hope we can all make some new friends here!

@mike aww the rules were better :P

“Don’t make me come over there” 😅

@peturbg all my contact info is in my bio. I don't use matrix. Can't you just ask me here like you're doing already?

Im more tahn 500 characters... so when i remember what i had to ask you. Gonna write you again. It is relation with linux. I find so much manuals and lie and cant get something to work.

@mike I don't use your service, but just wanted to say congratulations and thank you for keeping it running!

I've been trying to make my friends join #xmpp and the #fediverse, so #chinwag gives me one service I can recommend to them 🙂 🙃

@badrihippo thanks! It's a bit of a passion project that's been ongoing for a long time, keeps me interested. 😀

Always happy to help out!

Thanks Mike, for everything. I've followed you from a distance on another server for a while, figured it was time to join the party. 😍

@Discordian welcome, and I wholeheartedly approve of the username.
